Stained Glass Mother's Day Card | Simon Says Stamp

Happy Friday, it's finally here! Here is one of my favorite cards out of the all the cards that I made from the Simon Says Stamp April 2018 Card Kit.

With this card I used both the stencil and the stamps to create the background panel then I die cut it out with the MFT Wonky Stitched Stax. I stamped the butterflies on Bristol smooth paper and colored them in with Zig Real Clean Brush Markers and added Nuvo Gloss glitter sparkle to there wings and adhered them with foam tape. I cut a second panel using the Wonky stitched die and stamped the sentiment with Versavine Onxy Black Ink and used a border edge die just under the sentiment. I attached a piece of fun foam behind the panel to raise it and adhered it to the background panel. The entire panel is then mounted onto a piece of #110 white card stock card base and clear sparkling sequin mix are added for some detail.

Happy Mother's Day | Papertrey Ink

What a busy week it has been, and the weather has been like it's November all over again. Yesterday we had snow, sleet, and rain! I thought it was April but it's more like our fourth Winter again.

I pulled this card out of my stash today, it was a Mother's Day card I made last year that I had never posted, so I must of completed it once it was too late to mail.  So I though it would be great to blog it for today to break up for what's been a week full of butterflies.

This is my go to Papertrey The Sweet Life set I constantly go back to time and time again, I love these roses, and I am constantly trying to figure out what inks work together. Since acquiring my MISTI's using layers stamp sets have gotten so much easier to use.

You're the best Mom

Here is another Mother's Day card I have made from the SSS April card kit Beautiful Day!
The background is Lawn Fawn's really rainbow designer paper die cut with MFT Blueprints 13 to create the border and Pretty Pink Posh's Borders 2 to die cut the edging.

I stamped the butterflies on Bristol smooth with Versamark Onxy black ink and embossed with clear embossing powder. Then colored them with Zig Clear Real Brush markers, the vibrant pigments of these markers are amazing. I stamped the sentiment directly onto the side folding white card base and adhered it to the rainbow panel. I attached the leaves and then foam mounted the butterflies for dimension and added Nuvo blizzard dew drops onto the leaves and glitter gloss sparkles onto the butterflies for some sparkles. There is your card for today :)

Hava a Beautiful Day | Simon Says Stamp

I was anxiously awaiting this kit and I finally received it Friday the 13th as I wanted to get going on Mother's Day cards and that is exactly what I did, this is only one of the many cards I'll be sharing shortly in the future.

I started off with the background by using the SSS stencil butterflies and an assortment of Distress Oxide Inks. Then die cut the panel with the MFT wonky stitched rectangle stax border, I also cut a piece of white card stock using the same MFT die and die cut the edge with PPP scallop borders die.
Stamped the sentiment in onyx black versafine ink, for a crisp black image and stamped and colored the butterfly and leaves with Zig real color brush markers. I added some nuvo raspberry jewel drops and glitter to the butterflies wings.

Happy Anniversary | Altenew

This was my very first time using Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers, wow I just love them. Taa-daa---  My card is so bright and vibrant the picture does not do it justice.

I used Altenew Peony Bouquet stamp and stamped the image onto Bristol smooth paper with VersaMark clear ink, and heat set it with white embossing powder. Die-namics Blueprint 13 frame die was used to cut the image out and glued onto fun foam for dimension and then glued onto a burgundy card stock base and glued once again onto a 110lb white card stock base.
